Wedding Belles

It's early summer and we have weddings on the brain here at The Herb Companion headquarters. A certain nameless editor (who is my boss) is counting down the days to her daughter's sure-to-be-beautiful wedding. As for me, I was a bridesmaid recently.

The sheer number of decisions involved in a wedding stagger me. But my amazing married-and-therefore-subject-to-wedding-planning-by-fire friends (sum total 2; Although another is a newly engaged, as of last weekend!) did it without batting an eye. There were exactly zero dithering phone calls.

Proof positive is an example of the bouquet pictured below from my friend Ellie's wedding in April -- It's gorgeous! I just don't know how they did it. Selecting the flowers alone would send me to the phone in a rambling mess ...

Ellie's Bouquet

If you are involved in a wedding bouquet dilemma, here's what I learned from my friends:

1) Explain. It sounds simple, but prepare to explain what you have in mind. You know what you want, so speak up. Even if you don't know the Latin name of the bloom or the technical term for the shape of the bouquet, I'm betting you can describe your vision.
